Fitztown Teddy...

Teddy Bear 14 provided by Fitztown
This is my DT card for 
613 Ave C 's new challenge:
 Anything Goes / No twist!  
They have three sponsors this week [Dr. Digi / Limited Runs & Fitztown] - that means three prizes people!  So go for it - nothing to lose!
You can get all the other details and see some very creative inspiration from the talented ladies here at 613 Ave C

It's kinda fun to sit and color in a whole scene like this - back to my coloring book days!   And of course, I couldn't resist - I also had to do some paper sculpting.
[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]

  • I used a "Paper Sculpting Technique" that consists of:  printing the focal image twice, coloring with Copics, fussy cutting different layers, sculpting the individual pieces [dry embossing each individual piece from the back using a large ball tool] and layering with foam tape to maintain the dimension. The three little bears in front and the mama's left arm and head were all sculpted. You can see some of that better in this photo. 
  • I drew in the boards so I could make a wooden floor and added a sentiment.
  • The focal panel and the insides are double matted.

This card should be eligible for the following
